From Central New York to the US Navy, He’s a Leader Wherever He Goes
After years and years of service, it's time one Central New Yorker gets the recognition he deserves.
Meet George Seemann
According to his nominator, it would be hard to find someone more deserving of a First Responder Friday recognition than George. Mr. Seemann, from Sempronius, New York, is Chief of the New Hope Fire Department. Not only that, but he also serves as an advanced EMT for Four Towns Medical Squad.
Seemann's experience pre-dates his time as a first responder though. George is a proud veteran, serving in the U.S. Navy for 20 years as a Corpsman. He was deployed to multiple regions on active duty, and eventually retired as a Chief Petty Officer.
During his service, he also simultaneously completed a 20-year career with the U.S. Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Fire Rescue. There he retired as a Lieutenant.
Now-a-days, George protects Central New Yorkers locally and serves as a NY State Fire Instructor. He uses his vast knowledge to help his community and train new generations of firefighters.
Thank you George for your years of service. Your dedication is marveling, and not a day goes by where your peers aren't grateful for everything you do.
